Sergio Garcia has hit back amid talk of the strength of the United States team and criticism of the European contingent, delivering a reminder that "you don't win Ryder Cups with your mouth".

The Spaniard is appearing in his eighth Ryder Cup, the build-up to which has been dominated by talk of the USA assembling their "best team ever created" while some have suggested this may be the weakest European team in years.

But Garcia will let his play do the talking as Europe – boasting six Ryder Cup rookies – seek a fourth successive victory.

"Obviously everyone has - you know what they say, opinions - we all have one," he told a media conference on Tuesday. 

"Everyone's allowed to have their own opinion, but at the end of the day, you don't win Ryder Cups with your mouth."

"I think the most important thing is knowing that it's not a done deal. Even though we are on a good run, it's going to be tough, and we tried to tell them all that, all the rookies, that you have to fight hard."

On the perception that the Europeans have more camaraderie than the Americans, Garcia added: "I think probably it has to do with the European Tour. 

"I think that our Tour is a lot closer between players. When you come on the European Tour, you share rooms with players and stuff like that. That doesn't really happen on the U.S. Tour.

"Don't get me wrong, I think the PGA Tour is a great tour, but it's a little bit less personal than the European Tour is."
